While you’re planning this year’s vacations, you might as well update your packing list for 2023. We’ve pulled together seven beach vacation essentials for the new year based on both classic must-haves and current trends. If your 2023 resolution is travel, make sure to include these on your packing list.


Whether you’re hitting the beach or lounging poolside, sunscreen is an everyday essential that can’t be left behind.

Versatile styles

Versatile pieces make packing and styling easy. Consider packing a one-piece bathing suit that works well as a body suit, or a bikini top that pairs well with an oversized blazer.


Protect your eyes in style with a new or tried-and-true pair of sunnies. Make sure they’re UV resistant!

A new book

Books provide simple and healthy in-flight entertainment, as well as a way to destress during your trip. Pick up a new read before you take off for hours of relaxation. Here’s one of our favorites: Atomic Habits

Hair ties

Easy to forget, but wonderful to have. Even better: scrunchies that match your outfits.

Trucker hat

The new beach (and everyday) staple. Bring one or two trucker hats to match your vacation wardrobe.


Sarongs are back! Match a sarong to your favorite suit for the perfect amount of coverage.
